Eight Ingredients for a Budget Kitchen

Budget... a word everyone just can't seem to get away from, but don't necessarily want to think about. Budgeting may not be a blast, but it can certainly help you out when you're designing and planning your affordable kitchen!

To avoid over spending on your kitchen, Exeter Kitchen Store has come up with some suggestions for thrifty shopping!

Check out our eight top budgeting tips below:

Work your Worktop

When it comes to choosing worktops, a natural surface such as granite or marble may not always be the cheapest option. If you're on a tight budget when it comes to designing your kitchen, man-made surfaces are often more affordable alternatives! Luckily for you, the quality of laminates and quartz available in Exeter Kitchen Store is very high, which means these surfaces look very realistic. The perks don't stop here! Man-made worktops also have many benefits, such as low maintenance and perfect formation, which means you really can't go wrong!

Stretch it Further

One way to make the entire kitchen design project more affordable is to use Exeter Kitchen Store’s amazing interest free payment option! With 0% finance spread over two or three years, the stress of paying up front is removed, and we've also cut out concerns of interest rates. This reduces payments and spreads them out into manageable intervals - it doesn't get much better than that!

Affordable Appliances

When designing your cheap kitchen, Exeter Kitchen Store Consultants advise appliance costs can be cut when being conscious with your budget! Appliances can make a dent in your kitchen budget - but don't worry there are ways around this when you employ some savvy shopping! An affordable option such as Caple is a great alternative to better known brands like Bosch. Caple provide all the necessary basics; being lower in price because they don’t offer the brand awareness that Bosch does, or the more advanced appliance functions.

Door Decisions

When it comes to costing up your kitchen, Exeter Kitchen Store can advise you on which door style is best for you based on your taste and kitchen budget! The prices of doors from Exeter Kitchen Store varies - but don't worry! Our team of designers can help you design a stunning kitchen that is perfectly in keeping with your budget. In the meantime you can begin checking out our prices here! With a range of prices in our collection, we know you'll find a door that suits your budget.

Keeping Control

Understanding your budget can also help you maximise your kitchen fund! Sharing this information with our designers can also help them to determine where your money is best spent. When it comes to your kitchen, Exeter Kitchen Store Designers can help you stretch your funds and provide advice of where they think you should invest - and of course it is all tailored to your individual finances.

Compare Costs

Exeter Kitchen Store offers a Price Match Guarantee that allows you to shop around and compare prices! If you find a kitchen with a like-for-like design, we can match this price and take a further £100 off for your trouble. Which means you get your quality Exeter Kitchen Store kitchen at the lowest price on the market!

Simplify your Space

If you're looking for more ways to cut costs on your kitchen, Exeter Kitchen Store Designers recommend removing curved units and using standard carcases. As standard cabinets are cheaper than curved, this is an instant money saver! Another way of saving funds is fitting the kitchen yourself. As our cabinets come rigid built there is no need for you to assemble flat packed carcases, taking away the added complication of building your own carcases!
